Easily one of the most bizarre musical theatre concepts I've heard in a long while!

Its a good film, can't quite imagine it as a musical, but stranger subject matters have produced excellent shows before. Howard Goodall & Charles Hart are amazing so I am keen to see what they come up with.

I was unsure until I saw Goodall's name attached. It could still be an absolute stinker, but I'm less inclined to think so considering his involvement.

That was my thought process too, with Goodall on board there is a definite glimmer of hope!

It is a odd choice but it has potential, the story would need expanding though.

Can see this working actually. Think the story suits a transfer to a musical quite well, and having an Asian lead could be a major influence on the soundtrack, which would be refreshing.

Will be following this one closely.

I don't think we need this musical at all .
